Unfortunately too many individuals who control the reins of power in our so-called Amerikan Democracy could care less about the historical preservation of Information from the past. Many of them would actually hope that it would be forgotten so that they can continue to dumb down the population of this once great country. Atrophied minds are easier to control and tend to vote for more continual feedings at the trough of government 'benefit'. It is a shame that the greatest Archival collection of information and knowledge is privately funded and items uploaded by tens of thousands of volunteers while our government concentrates on 'busy-bodyism' and intervention all over the world. Wasting billions of dollars bombing and killing people in other countries as if that were some sort of badge of honor.
Transparency is the greatest fear held by the bullies who run our governments at nearly all levels in this country. The 'Internet of Everything' and sites such as the Internet Archive provide insurance that the past will never disappear and will provide the information and tools to allow critical thinking to once again blossom throughout the world.
